If the previous announcement
of a December release date (deja vu
?) caused you to put Rygar: The Battle of Argus
on your gift wishlist, better find a substitute! Tecmo seems to have gotten into the habit of delaying the remake,
and they're not ready to say goodbye just yet. We've received a press release announcing the latest date: February 3, 2009. We've got some more screenshots in our gallery at which you can stare wistfully.
1up editor Sam Kennedy, who found out about this after
rushing through the game for review, suggests that Tecmo decided to delay the game to avoid getting lost in the holiday rush, rather than in the interest of any refinements. "... no changes are going to be made to the game in the meantime -- it's just being held for an extra two months."
